Wadi Rum is everything you'd expect of a quintessential desert: extreme in heat in the summer and freezing temperatures in the winter. It is violent and moody as the sun slices through the chiseled canyons at dawn or melts the division between rock and sand at dusk. It is exacting on the Bedouin who live in it and vengeful on those who ignore the dangers it presents. Experience its power and beauty with your expert guide. Your tour will begin with a pick up from your hotel in Eilat at 08:30 AM. After crossing the Arava border, you will drive to Wadi Musa Petra and tour the site. After the tour, you will eat lunch in Petra and drive to Wadi Rum and stay overnight at an authentic Bedouin camp.

Nádherný výlet na krásná místa! Ačkoliv se nám postupně věnovalo několik lidí, organizace fungovala na jedničku. Obzvláštní pochvalu si zaslouží náš průvodce po Petře a celý první den. Oproti údajům v nabídce byla v ceně i skvělá večeře první večer ve stanovém táboře. Maximální spokojenost.

Nice tour and friendly guide who shared lots of interesting facts about the place. Besides hiking through the red canyon, we were offered a fun jeep tour and could enjoy beautiful views along the way. Some stops that we didn't expect were even added to the tour which was great!

We had a great tour through Tinma park and even explored modern copper mines while driving off-road on the way to the park. The guide was very friendly and happy to share his knowledge about the area.

Alex is a cool Jew, he is super open minded and explained us not only the natural things about the tour but also any other questions we had on their culture. 100% recommended !

Both my two kids and I felt safe and the help and guidance from the guides were really nice. From Marie
